Shawn Lynn Joins Srs As Pitching Coach This Fall
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Saturday, June 19, 2010
After being drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays and the San Diego Padres, two years with Team Canada, a brilliant college career and ten years of coaching experience at the elite level, Shawn Lynn will join the 18u Terriers as their pitching coach this fall. Like all of the Terriers staff, Shawn comes from grass roots baseball, where he began playing the game as a Mosquito in North York. Shawn played for the Blues all the way up through Junior, and was one of the city of Toronto's best players.

His talent with the bat and on the mound got him selected to represent the province with Team Ontario and also his country with Canada's National Team twice. Following high school, Shawn earned a baseball scholarship to Seminole State College in Oklahoma, where he led the Trojans pitching staff with a staggering 11-1 record. The team finished 76-5 overall, appeared in the World Series and Shawn had the opportunity to play in front of over 20,000 fans. Shawn describes this as one of his greatest baseball moments. After being drafted by the Padres Shawn was asked to a sign a pro contract, however due to an arm injury he had to give up his dream of playing professional baseball and returned home. Shawn has dedicated the past ten years to coaching in the PBLO. In 2004, alongside CEO of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, Tom Valke, Shawn started an 18u team, The Canadian Baseball Hall of Famers. Several of those players have gone on to receive scholarships to US colleges and universities. The Terriers are proud to have Shawn on board and look forward to the immense knowledge he will share with all of our players.
